Securities Safekeeping

When used in tandem with other FHLB Chicago products, our safekeeping service provides member financial institutions a broad range of financial services that can help them with their bottom line.

In addition, all collected funds from coupon payments, security sales, and maturities are automatically invested in the customer's DID account and earn the FHLB Chicago's market interest rate.
